So, what to do if you drop your phone in water in order to give a water damaged device the best chances of survival... or at the very least the greatest hope for successful data recovery?
With DIY repairs, often comes the risk of damaging the device you're working on. Which can be a total pain! A simple torn cable or cracked LCD is a simple fix with no extra specialised tools necessary. But damage to an LCD Connector or a back light circuit on the motherboard is a whole other world. Requiring very specific equipment for Micro Soldering, not to mention a whole heap of patience.
